Founder, Editor and Publisher, Medianama.com
Mr. Nikhil Pahwa is involved with online communities for over 12 years now, including groups around creative writing, design, music, bloggers and the digital media business in India.
For more than two years, he has covered the business of Indian digital media - Internet, Mobile, Media and Entertainment - for contentSutra, a part of Rafat Ali’s exceptional ContentNext network of Digital Media sites.
As the Editor of contentSutra, he helped bring a pan-media perspective to digital media reportage, highlighting industry issues, identifying opportunities and problems, and questioning the efficacy of decisions being made by some large media companies.
In 2008, he founded MediaNama to extend that focus to emerging segments including MVNOs, mobile payments, local language content, location based services etc, apart from bringing clarity on government policy and industry developments. We also launched India's first data journalism initiative - MediaNama Charts.
